Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Training

The importance of emotional intelligence (EQ) has been emerging since 2011. A report by Career builder in 2011 found that 34% of hiring managers said they were placing greater emphasis on emotional intelligence when hiring and promoting employees. In the same report, 71% said they value emotional intelligence in an employee more than IQ.

EQ is recognised as a valuable trait for employees and a critical characteristic of those already in or seeking leadership positions. 

While some individuals have more natural EQ than others, emotional intelligence training can help increase the awareness levels and skills you need to lead and perform with self-awareness and empathy. Could you or your staff benefit from Emotional Intelligence development?

Each of our courses can be tailored to your organisation's exact needs and our courses can be run at your offices with a minimum of 4 attendees to a maximum of 12 to ensure a highly interactive session.

Duration: 1 day 9AM - 4PM

Reasons for Emotional Intelligence training

Emotional Intelligence is the ability to control yourself in all situations and influence the environment around you. Research suggests that individuals with developed EQ make better decisions, stay calm under pressure, are better at resolving conflict, and have better empathy. These lead to better relationships with  teams and stronger outcomes for your business.

The same research suggests that the qualities of high EQ are not fixed, but can be developed in individuals.

Our emotional intelligence course is suitable for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and how they can use that knowledge within their own workplace - or to forward their career. 

Participants in this emotional intelligence course will emerge with the following:

  • An understanding of what emotional intelligence means and how this can be applied within a business context. 
  • An understanding of what it means to control emotional responses. 
  • The tools to be able to change previous patters of behaviours to work in a more emotionally intelligent manner.
  • How to use emotional intelligence for strategic influence
  • The ability to deliver key messages in an emotionally intelligent way to gain buy-in from stakeholders. 
  • The knowledge to bring emotional intelligence and soft skills together to create lasting behavioural change.

Our training works

We believe that learning - especially for adults - should be relevant and engaging. The content should be immediately useful and use current, real-world examples. It doesn't matter if you have an MBA or left school at year 9 - our courses are accessible and useful to people from different backgrounds and educational levels. 

And like you, we have sat through far too many training sessions that are "death by PowerPoint" - we don't use PowerPoint - our training is hands-on, practical and engaging.
